Speaker – Richard Cohen – Solicitor and Chairman of Epoq Group The Legal Services Act 2007 (LSA) is the first attempt to draw the entire legal services market into one regulatory framework. It is a reaching and radical departure from existing regulation and legal business structures and will lead to the creation of “Alternative Business Structures” (ABS). The effect will be that the £23 billion legal services market, once the preserve of law firms, will be distributed through banking, insurance and retail outlets. Change to the legal services market will come via new entrants and existing savvy law firms who will reap the greatest benefits by using the latest technology solutions to deliver innovative legal services.

A student told me about "Aerosol Alley" in Phoenix and gave me a map to check it out. This weekend @Clairemarilee and I headed up there and we walked the length of the alley and ended up behind the Phoenix Art Supply where a man quickly came out and asked my purpose. He said a lot of people will come photograph the graffiti in the alley and pretend the art was their own work. I explained I was here to showcase the work and photograph the beauty of it. He told us to come on inside the supply shop so we could see what they’re all about. They’re about legal graffiti and graffiti as an art form. The shop was full of paint in different receptacles including cans where you could buy different size nozzles. Very cool. Soon they’re moving to the west side and most of the work will be done indoors.

While my photograph here is Creative Commons, the graffiti is not. If you choose to use an image of mine here in publication: The photo credit is Devon Christopher Adams and the graffiti credit is "Just Blaze". Do not steal the graffiti designs or duplicate them without first contacting "Phoenix Art Supply".

What are legal forms of discrimination in laws against American Citizens?

I was thinking maybe gay rights or something. I don’t really know and it’s bugging me.

Best answer:

Answer by Kelly
Affirmative action (reverse discrimination). It is boosting minorities like blacks and hispanics in order to “level the playing field” in places like colleges/universities, job applications, etc. It discriminates mainly against whites and asian Americans.

Question by Nevada W: How do you know a personal injury lawyer has your best interest in mind?
I hired a med malpractice attorney to negot settlement for me. The offending med pro had previously offered to settle my case & I was under the impression that the attorney would be able to complete the transaction in a timely manner. Once he became aware of the intricacies of my case & the possible $ amount a lawsuit would bring, he started trying to get me to convert from the $ 300 p/h rate to the contingency rate. Now, over a year has pasted and there is no sign of a settlement. The offending med. pro. insurance co. has not communicated with my attorney in some time. In retrospect, I have no idea if my lawyer even submitted our counter offer to the insurance co. By way of the “grapevine” I heard that the offending med prof says she is being sued by me. I have no intention of getting involved in a lawsuit when a settlement is (was?) at hand. How can I check and make sure the lawyer is representing my best interest and not just waiting for me to give in to a suit and make himself big $
Thank you for your input. See here is the problem. We created a counter offer settlement letter. But how do I know that it was submitted to the opposing counsel and the insurance company? The counter had a expiration date. The insurance co. never replied. In the mean time, I found out more detail regarding the offending provider (unlicensed employees carrying out duties that require state license etc…) When my offending providers state license expired, her insurance company dropped her. So. Is it possible that the original insurance company is WANTING me to file suit, thus the NEW insurance company will have to defend the offending provider? I have no idea, and I am operating in the dark.
